Angry Ariens ST5+2 Troubleshooting

I have a hand-me-down Ariens ST5+2 that is who-knows-how-old. It has been reliable for 6 years for me, but is having some trouble.

When I pump the gas-prime bulb a dozen times as instructed to start the engine, it fires up fairly easily. It then dies out within a few seconds. If I continue to pump the bulb manually, I seem to be able to keep it running almost indefinitely. Any ideas?

Carburetor needs a cleaning. The fuel is not flowing properly.
